Here is an idea rather than making it a race for individuals, try making it a "GUILD EVENT" so that players have to form their guild and level it in competition with others on the realm to get the first 5 characters to 60 in a group picture. They would need min 6 characters to start the guild and if we limit the guild size to 10 players then there is potentially 5 or 6 groups all going at once. You could set up a 5 man perfect squad for dungeon running, you could all run aoe classes and just farm, you could have 10 players with 5 supporting and helping a main 5. This brings tactics and group forming and community aspects along with competition. This means you need not just one person with 20hrs a day to play, you need a group of players working together, probably in the same time zone and makes small pocket communities that will last into endgame.

If you planned this event on reddit, you could even enforce every guild must contain at least one new player to the realm. This integrates new and old folk and will naturally invite people into existing communities.

I wanted to point out what some of the other servers are doing to advertise. I am not condoning their approach but it will at least show what level of advertisement is out there to compete with.

Hellfire- Instant lvl 70 Event
Vengence- Horde Side XP event
K2- New content release
Retro, Truewow/Primal- Advertsing xfer options

I am sure I am missing a few. I don't agree with an instant max lvl event but you can see the amount of attention it has generated for Hellfire on /r/wowservers. If the server were to take opt to do something that is not blizzlike for a short duration (like an xp event) it could be messaged in a way that doesn't tarnish this servers name.

I really agree with vengencewow's approach to their XP event. They want to be blizzlike but understand they need people. A server with 100 people online is far from blizzlike. It is really disheartening to see messages in this thread where people seem to righteous to entertain the "Hype player". In every community there are loyal/consistent players and wishy washy ones. The world we live in has many less loyal people. We have to accept that dynamic.

P.S.- A race to 60 is a server event and not a recruitment event. It sounds fun but I agree with NIckje's earlier comments.
